Dear Manjunath,
Welcome to HCM.
Knee joints are very important parts of the body and any problem to them should not be taken lightly. They are the weight bearing joints and if neglected will cause irreparable damage later on. You should consult an orthopedic surgeon immediately who will do the necessary tests to find the cause of your knee problem and treat accordingly. Follow his advise which may include rest to the knee joints.
Wishing you speedy recovery.

I am a 47 year old Indian woman. My kness hurt after certain exercises especially while climbing stairs. But they don t always hurt. What should I do? My x rays show only very early stages of arthritis. I made the mistake of resuming my jogging after a break of 4 years.

I had a fall today -tripped over a baby gate and fell directly on my knee cap of my right leg. I can walk with only a little pain and feel I am slightly weak in the right knee when full weight baring but if I bend it any more than about 30 degrees or if I twist it just slightly I get significant shooting pain through my knee. I had staged split stellar tendon transfer about 9 years and 10 years ago to correct patellar tracking/lateral valgus deformity problem and have very mild osteoarthritis changes in my knees. I am 44years old and active/muscular but a little overweight. I am concerned but not sure how worried should be about true joint injury vs bruising. I have taken naproxen and kept ice on knee intermittently since I fell but feels the same anytime I try to bend. Tried putting pillow under knee to elevate but uncomfortable because makes my knee bend. Any thoughts appreciated.

I have knee pain beneath, and around knee cap, mostly on the interior side of knee cap. Knee feels stiff, but no swelling. I have had this issue for some time with no relief. Shooting pain comes with stress on joint, especially when trying to lift with resistance. What type of injury is this likely? What stepa should I take moving forward?

2years after tkr, have burning, stiffness after standing in one place for a few minutes, pressure behind knee, actually pressure discomfort in back of leg from thigh to calf. The stiffness after standing for just a short time is what really bothers me. Went through usual therapy and achieved excellent flexibility. Sorry, don t know exact number. Still ride my recumbent bike, walk every day. Within 10 minutes of walking, knee starts to burn. Also am not really steady on my feet anymore because of the difference of leg length. I have neuropathy, but not severe, and wonder if that might cause some of the burning.
